The World Of PC/WOKE


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politically Correct Re-Posted Sep 17, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Ok, now they are saying we should no longer refer to incidents with sharks as an “attack.” That unfairly demonizes them as killers. Instead, we should refer to such incidents as an “encounter.” So if someone kills another at gunpoint in a robbery, he is not a killer, it was just an encounter. Interesting logic since a shark is not a ruthless killer; it is just hungry. So a thief is not a robber; he is a materially deprived person entitled to what you have because “equality” makes it just.

The Democrat’s Veterans Crisis


Armstrong Economics Blog/Gov’t Incompetence Re-Posted Sep 16, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: I just need to vent. I use to be a Democrat but will never vote for one again. I am a Vet and under Obama, we were treated as second-rate citizens. Many would die waiting for a doctor. Under Trump, he turned the VA upside down. If they cannot see you, they have to pay for outside doctors to take care of you. He streamlined their paperwork which was outrageous. All these people do is hate Trump for everything. They even had to build the wall they called him a racist over that. Now the COVID is back. You are not allowed visitors anymore. Biden figures we should have died on the battlefield alone so why should we die with family now?

REPLY: I know your frustration. I have a Vietnam Vet friend here who goes to the VA hospital at St. Pete. You now line up in your car to get even the flu vaccine. They told him he had to quartine for four days before entering the hospital for a procedure. He said the same thing. Trump reversed the Obama VA crisis, and now the Democrats are disrespecting Vets all over again. Interestingly, Hitler began exterminating WWI Vets because they were deemed “useless” under the same philosophy — So what have you done for me lately?

Trump vowed to do more for the veterans when the Democrats cut everything they could in the VA and military for social programs. The Veterans Health Administration scandal of 2014 was a reported pattern of negligence in the treatment of the United States military veterans. Obama was confronted by reports of a total meltdown of the VA by members of his own party. Even the New York Times, back then, said Obama “gave in to the pressure and performed the sort of ritual Washington sacrifice…”

Sheriff Wayne Ivey in Brevard County, Florida, releases shocking video of an officer involved shooting that took place August 30th.  The video was released September 10th and shows just how dangerous it is to be a police officer.

During a traffic stop a career felon with outstanding warrants was a passenger seated in the rear of the vehicle.  When the officers instructed him to exit the vehicle, the suspect immediately pulls out a short barrelled rifle and starts shooting at the officers.   A total of 61 shots were fired in the exchange.

Woke USA Women Soccer Team Lose 3-0 at Olympics


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 21, 2021 | Sundance | 365 Comments

Perhaps if they spent a little more energy on soccer skills, and a little less energy attempting to be the woke champions of US sport, the outcome may have been different.  Alas, there’s a great number of Americans who shrug because USA women’s national soccer has evolved into a political assembly who happen to play soccer. The team’s egotistical, arrogant, pompous and virtue-signaling attitude is a considerable turn-off.

This is the same team that wears ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their uniforms, and kneels instead of stands for the U.S. national anthem to showcase to the world just how woke they are.  Team Captain Ms. Rapinoe refuses to sing the U.S. national anthem; kneels during ceremonies to make her hatred for America visible; and grabs every microphone to tell the media about her politics in an effort to increase her woke resistance credentials.

Team USA soccer loses in the first round of the Olympics to Sweden.  Meh, it’s a headline because, well, karma or something.

TOKYO (AP) — Sweden didn’t have to bunker down on defense against the Americans this time.  Stina Blackstenius scored a pair of goals and the Swedes stunned the United States at the Olympics with a 3-0 victory Wednesday in the women’s soccer tournament.

The Americans, ranked No. 1 in the world and the favorites to win gold in Tokyo, were riding a 44-match unbeaten streak heading into the match. But Sweden, ranked No. 5, has been the U.S. team’s nemesis of sorts in recent years. The Swedes bounced the Americans from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games in the quarterfinals, the earliest U.S. Olympic exit ever, by making a defensive stand. (read more)

Black National Anthem – Deliberate Reestablishing Segregation?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Tyranny Re-Posted Jul 6, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Interesting Point of View. Politically, all socialist governments have the same ob jective – to segregated and prevent the people from uniting. Even Amazon was trying to keep very diverse workforces and the document that surfaced showed that by keep the workforce diverse, it was less likely to unite and join together to form a union. This appears to be a deliberate strategy to divide and conquer the American people by PREVENTING unity. They are deliberately trying to pit one race against another. This is a historical well-documented strategy.

Open Border Activists Demand White House Confront The “Insurrection of Rebellious States”, AKA Red State Alliance Sending Help to Secure Border


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 5, 2021 | Sundance | 252 Comments

This was so predictable CTH wrote about it HERE.  Several states responded to the call from Texas Governor Greg Abbott asking for allied states to send law enforcement and national guard to secure the southern border after the Biden administration actively, intentionally and purposefully works to keep it open.

With the potential for cooperation from states, what I call “extreme federalism“, to secure the border regardless of the Federal inaction, an assembly of various activist groups are petitioning the White House to confront the states with direct military action.

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), a far-left communist advance group, is asking Joe Biden to fight the state effort with all measures possible, including armed confrontation.

WASHINGTON DC – […] “We told the president in no uncertain terms, this is an insurrection by recalcitrant and rebellious states that must be stopped,” says Domingo Garcia, national president of LULAC. He said Mr. Abbott, who hosted former President Donald Trump for a border visit last week, was “fomenting dangerous racial hatred targeting Latinos.”

LULAC’s Texas director, Rodolfo Rosales Jr., compared the states’ actions to the Civil War. “We are being invaded by governors of the defeated Confederacy to arm the border against brown women and children escaping political persecution, hunger, and death,” he said.

The states LULAC cited — Arizona, Nebraska, Idaho, Florida and South Dakota — don’t exactly match with the contours of the Confederacy, and questions over states’ ability to influence federal immigration policy extend well beyond the current Biden administration border crisis. (read more)

Topple Statues of Queen Elizabeth II in Canada


Armstrong Economics Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Jul 3, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

In Canada, they are toppling statues of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. A group of protesters gathered at the Manitoba legislature and pulled down the statue of Queen Victoria on Canada Day. A smaller statue of Queen Elizabeth II was also torn down on the premises. The demonstration comes as close to 1,000 unmarked graves of children have been found at the sites of former residential schools. Demonstrators toppled statues of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II in Winnipeg Thursday as outrage grows in Canada over the discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves of Indigenous children.

Politicians fostered this anti-establishment phase to get rid of Trump. The problem now is that there is no putting this genie back in the bottle. Now they are huddling behind closed doors and will eventually use this as an excuse to suppress the people. It is just getting out of control everywhere. The lockdowns have simply made it all much worse.

They Lack Charisma


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jul 2, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: I agree. It seems that they are trying to use Jan 6th for support and make conservatives the enemy.  However, are they succeeding?  They certainly do not have anyone that is a charismatic speaker.  It seems despite the media’s attempt at making this a big deal, that at least half the population is not buying it.

This must be part of how they are failing.  Maybe they should have tried pulling this off when Obama was in office?

C

REPLY: They lack the charismatic person for their venture. I do not see Gates, Schwab, or anyone else with that charismatic nature. They said Hitler could really bring out the emotion in people and appealed to their patriotism. We have Schumer and Pelosi trying that approach, but they do not have what t takes. Of all the leaders I met, I would have to say Bill Clinton has that spark of charisma.

Virginia Student Records Teacher Manipulating Lesson to Force Critical Race Theory


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 29, 2021 | Sundance | 181 Comments

Friend of the Treehouse John Spiropoulos continues highlighting how Critical Race Theory is infecting the public educational system.  In this brief excerpt John highlights the efforts of a teacher in Virginia who was recorded by a student during a distance learning class.

The teacher clearly wants to make race the focus of an innocuous picture and the student doesn’t get why the teacher is so racially focused.  As the student continues to push-back against the manipulative intent, the teacher gets frustrated and accuses the student of being “intentionally coy” about a picture of two young women.

The excerpt shows the way teachers are forcing students to focus on race; essentially bullying the students by demanding they focus on race.  [Rumble Link] and video below:

What happens when a student doesn’t conform to the teacher’s viewpoint about race? Watch. This is radical Critical Race Theory at work. And it’s in classrooms all across the country. Some students reject the indoctrination.”
